My Repair & Advice
Refrigerator was not cooling, but was continuously runing & freezer compartment was extremely cold. Determined that fan assembly that takes freezer air & circulates to the refrigerator didn't seem to be working. Determined that the fan assembly motor was not rotating. Easily found replacement on AppliancePartsPro.com. Received the part quickly (Impressive delivery time!). Unplugged refrigerator, then easily removed to rear cover inside the freezer section by removing hex head screws. Diconnected wiring to the motor, noting which wires went where (picture does wonders!).
Removed Fan Assembly as a single unit, removing the handful of hexhead screws. Simply positioned the new assembly, re-installed the screws & reconnected wiring. Plugged 'fridge back in to ensure fan was running correct rotation & air was entering refrigerator compartment. Once confirmed, unplugged refrigerator (for safety) & re-installed back cover over fan insight freezer compartment.Plugged back in & Voila! Perfecto!
